Ocean Isle & Sunset Beach Fishing report

Trout action plus more!

Posted on 06/22/2013

The last half of this past week was just as busy as the first, as I have been on the water all day, everyday.  Overall, the fishing has remained consistent throughout the week, even though the fish cooperated better on some days than others.  We have had to deal with some extremely high tides the past couple of afternoons due to the full moon, which has made for some challenging fishing, but we have managed to find some action nonetheless. Much to my delight, the trout bite really turned on well towards the end of the week, making for some really good fishing.  The fish have been mixed size wise, which is typical this time of year, with a lot of 11-12 inch "spike trout" schooled up with bigger fish in the 2-3 pound range, so the name of the game has been to work through the small ones to get to the big ones.  While we have spent a great deal of time floating live shrimp under floats for trout during the last half on the week, we have been able to find some action with some redfish, black drum, and sheepshead in the same areas which we have been trout fishing in.  The flounder fishing has been hit or miss for me all week, but we have managed to catch some, and I received word that there was a good flounder bite around Ocean Isle and Sunset beaches today, so hopefully the flounder action will continue to improve.  Check out the photos below of some of our catches from the last few days. I still have plenty of opening for this coming week, but they are filling up fast, so don't miss your chance to get in on the action!
